  4. Breath naturally throughout the movement

  5. Continue until fatiqued

Exercise 2. Crab walk

  1. Sit on your butt, then place all your bodyweight on your palms and soles of your feet.

      The bear crawls are absolutely brutal if you do them long enough and keep up the pace, or try going up hill with them. You'll be sore the next day for sure.
